News Weekly, April 20, 2019

No More

Not enough options, so I need plans.
No answers or good ideas most days, so I need a good read after tea.
No prospects, so I need good deeds and merits.

No expiations, so to make up for the fear and worry,
I need earthly necessities and the radio news.
No profits, so I must please God more to avoid
bad happenings and get answered prayers.

No more group Rosaries. All I have left is novenas to the Saints and petitions at the consecration of Mass.
No more masses in English vernacular since migration and my novena for wisdom;
All I can do to please God is intercessory prayer and good deeds.
No more laxatives, they are a waste of money.

All that remains is white wine, yoghurt with the cultures and meriting and acts of virtue.
No more hopes of better life or better options.
All I can do is live in fear, worry a lot, seek God’s will and persevere.

No more trips to the city for shopping now metro rail tunnel is under way, unless I get lots of guidance, good plans and inspiration.
All that remains is to enjoy my assets and pray a lot.

No more happiness, I’m too upset by all the fools,
progressive trendies and believers in climate change;
too worried about energy security and Australia.
All I can do is prepare for the worst and plan my survival.

Susan Pelly
